Yes, certain disaster narrowly averted. And if they were going to throw Joan Jett on there, why didn't they add Lita Ford also?
I Love Rock and Roll is the only hit she had. And that gets you into the top 100? I do remember her doing a cover of Little Drummer Boy on the soundtrack of some sissy ass Andrew McCarthy movie.
And how did they leave Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi off? That is the biggest injustice of that entire list.

Didn't she cover Crimson and Clover also? I also seem to recall that she was in an all girls band that had some critical acclaim. The Runaways? With Lita Ford? There is absolutely no good reason I should remember any of this.

She did remake Crimson and Clover didn't she. Maybe that's the movie soundtrack song I'm thinking of. The Runaways, that just might be the first all-girl hard rock group.
If they were going on songwriting ability, which I'm assuming they did, (otherwise Kurt Cobain doesn't make the list) what happened to Chrissie Hynde? The Pretenders had quite a few good hit tunes. I'd take her over JJ any day.
But I think I may be giving Rolling Stone too much credit. I'm actually suprised they didn't have Edgar Winter on the list. He played one of those synthesizer keyboards that was strapped on like a guitar. With Rolling Stone's loose qualifications of "great guitar player" I would have thought that qualified him.
